Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Miamie Dolphins-Baltimore Ravens Week 13 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Miami Dolphins at (-3) Baltimore Ravens, Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
Mike: Ravens. Miami keeps finding ways to win, but this is a big test, especially against the NFL’s No. 1 rushing defense. The Fins could have even more trouble scoring given some injuries on the offensive line and to receiver DeVante Parker.
Andre: Dolphins. The Dolphins lead the league in defensive hurries with 83, while Cameron Wake is a beast with 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in the past six games. Miami has 11 takeaways compared to just two giveaways during its six-game winning streak.
Ricky: Ravens. For whatever it’s worth, these teams have stunk against the spread in December recently: Miami is 5-15 ATS in its last 20 December games and Baltimore is 0-11 in its last 11 such contests. Someone has to jump out of the loss column in this one, though, and I’m betting it’ll be the Ravens, who should be able to take advantage of the Dolphins’ banged-up offensive line and neutralize Miami’s typically explosive rushing attack.
